Nick Clegg on faith schools

From an interview given by Nick Clegg to The Jewish News:

If we are to create a society in which everyone has a fair chance in life, we need to focus on education, above all. Faith schools have an important role to play in that, and I am keen that they become engines of integration, not of segregation. I would like to see faith schools working together, so you get a network of different schools and faiths. That way children will grow up in an environment where they are aware of the plurality of faiths and views around them.

The interview also covers topics such as tackling antisemitism and the Middle East peace process. You can read the rest of the interview here.
